Care home unveils brand new fishing platform

Residents at a care home will be able to enjoy their favourite past time without having to leave the site after a disabled friendly fishing deck was built by the onsite lake.

Barchester’s White Lodge in Wiltshire looks after a number of keen anglers and they have now opened the water which is stocked with a variety of carp and silverfish.

Injured army troops have also benefitted from the move, with ex-servicemen who are being tendered to at nearby Tedworth House Hospital – which is funded by the Help for Heroes charity - enjoying use of the facility during a specially arranged day.
